Dear Colleagues and Friends ,
It is my great pleasure to welcome you to the European Conference on Antennas and Propagation, EuCAP 2022, the flagship conference on antennas and propagation in Europe. After two years of online conferences due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are ready to come back to a face-to-face event in Madrid, from March 28th to April 1st at the “IFEMA Palacio Municipal de Congresos” Convention Centre. As you can imagine, there will be some people, especially overseas, who will not be able to come to Madrid for this EuCAP edition. For them, we have prepared some online elements that provide the opportunity for all of us to participate in the conference. These online elements include the opportunity for all authors to present their papers orally online, the opportunity to enjoy the videos and posters for all presentations, and the opportunity to view some sessions via streaming.
However, during these past months, we learnt that these virtual elements cannot replace a face-to-face conference. We want to continue the tradition of EuCAP as being a unique forum to strengthen the link between the scientific antennas and propagation communities in areas related to 5G, space applications, and future communication systems. To achieve this goal, we have carefully prepared a wonderful as well as diverse technical and social program that you can find here at EuCAP 2022.
On behalf of EurAAP board, the Conference Organizing Committee, and the EuCAP Steering Committee, I would like to thank you for your tremendous effort in supporting this edition of EuCAP. We received 942 papers, reviewed by 1,092 volunteers, who accepted 828 papers. Moreover, we have 3 keynote speakers, 12 invited speakers, 12 industrial workshops, 5 scientific workshops, and 4 short courses, in line with the focus of this edition’s theme: “Linking Antennas and Propagation with New Terrestrial and Satellite Communication Networks”. Thanks very much to the Technical Program Committee and to all the volunteers involved in the many technical and logistic areas necessary to complete this program.
Also, thank you to our valued sponsors and exhibitors; in this uncertain time, your presence here is most appreciated. We look forward to the presentation of your newest products and services in the exhibition area. I am very sure that you will end the week satisfied with the conference.
Finally, I wish you all a memorable experience at EuCAP 2022 and a wonderful time in Madrid.
